A rogue cop, a by-the-book rookie and a vicious turf war between rival yakuza are the ingredients of a super-stylish crime thriller set in 1980s Hiroshima.

The adaptation of Yûko Yuzuki’s 2015 bestseller Lone Wolf’s Blood is as hard-boiled as they come. It’s 1988 and the streets of Hiroshima are being turned red by yakuza clans slugging it out for supremacy. Rumoured to have mob connections is Ōgami (superstar Kôji Yakusho, in red-hot form), a veteran detective with more commendations and more reprimands than anyone else at the station. Learning things the fast, loose and blood-soaked Ōgami way is fresh-faced rookie Hioka (Tôri Matsuzaka). Vigorously directed by Koji Wakamatsu protégé Kazuya Shiraishi (Dawn of the Felines, 2017), this crunching combo of heavy-duty action and high impact emotion is one of the most impressive Japanese crime films of recent times.
